As a young boy and through my early 20s I visited the Liberty Memorial several times. It had been more than 40 years since my last visit. On Jan. 21, my wife and I had the pleasure of visiting the memorial once more. I was impressed with the new facilities. What a great improvement. The volunteers were very knowledgeable and helpful.
Also present that day were three busloads of students. I was happy to see them as there are things to be learned at the memorial that were not in my history books. And the students were well behaved. I might add the memorial has a research center for further studies.
